Mll.w.u KKK, Het. 11. There is work
t ir another iti-urnl jury if the statements
made ly spccnil insurance (iotcc ives lire
true. Ti e statements are -ctisnt ivinal in
the ex' reme ami reflect upon Milwaukee's
fair iiaiue. Ti.e vet y serious c'nnrc;es made,
li.nvev. i-. are -u;i ried as yet by the ia
Hiis'iiiie detectives mly. An array of
start!. in; f.ieis relative to the direct
c uiscK of so many tires in Milwaukee dur
ing the nist year is said to be in t lie hands
of special agents of leading fire insurance
C impanies. It is learned that t hree special
a.-etits and detective, who have leeu
"working" on the Milwaukee tires for the
Jiat six months, have stated to some in
t -rested parties t lint t hey have succeeded
in :issur::iK themselves and their com
panies that a tiuiiitx-r of the mysterious
tires were specially "arranged" conflagra
tions. Kven Claim Written Confession.
They also state that there were in all
onie twenty suspects, that written con
fessions have been secured from some of
these and that the strongest kind of evi
dence is at hand against the others. In
this numlier, it is claimed, there iwe two
business men. For months the special
gents l ave been hard at work following
up certain slight clues, and now the insur
ance men declare that ti.eir evidence is so
conclusive that t heir (Minpanies are will
ing to furnish all the h -al talent neces
Bary to pro-ecute the ca-es in the event
that the nut hnrit ies are not inclined t-i
push the cases. The insurance men claim
tliut a lunula r of the sii-p.'cted parties
seem to have employed the same men todo
the wo. k I'cir the.n.

These men, it is further claimed, arc

any terms h cu m; y I.e sii-.-ested l y tho
compHiiies. t)n t i:e ot at r hainl tin- agents
are not in favor of u -t set; ! nient un
less nothing can he unit in the wav of
prosecution, i ney insist that the cases
were not worked up for the sake of getting
& settlement of claims at their terms and
that the companies would greatly prefer
to prosecute the suspects upon the evidence
they claim to have at hand. In the event
of a v. holesale pro-ecution it is declared
there would hesomestartlingdeveloiiments
in Milwaukee business circles. Hut local
insurance men say prosecution would
further injure Milwaukee's position with
the insurai.ee companies. -
ANOTHER VIEW OF THE MATTER.
A Mi-ruins Taper Siy It Is u Itehush of
an Old Craze.
With reference to the above The Times
this morning says: "A story of se.-mingly
startling consequmice on the surface atient
the old firebug scare has appeared in an
afternoon newspaper. At one time the
theory thnt many of the frequent fires here
of last winter and spring were caused by
incendiaries became a red-hot craze and
resulted in the inipanneling of a special
prand jury at great cost to the taxpayers.
The deliberations of that body resulted in
ending a mentally diseased man to pun
ishment, who confessed tosettinij the IStadt
theater afire. Other than this it waa dis
proved that there were any firebugs iu
"liut untold mischief to the city had al
ready been done by the alarmists. Not
content, however, they are again ut the
old and thread-bare tale." Here The
Times fjuotes the salient points of the
story given above, and proceeds: "George
H. liuesell expressed the sentiments of a
number of insurance agents interviewed.
'It. is nothing more nor less than a news
paper sensation,' said he, 'and a most per
nicious one at that, fso far as I kuow
there is not a word of truth in it. Further
than that there is not one man in Milwau
kee who would be willing to settle his
claims at the company's figures. While I
think that this story was suggested by the
unearthing of a number of incendiaries in
Chicago the situation as regards the Mil
waukee fires is totally dissimilar.
" 'Here the men against whom the arti
cle insinuates have all started up in busi
ness again and they had quite a hard time
to do it at that. The current theory that
fire-bugs were abroad in .xilwaukee caused
them to experience great tlifliculty in re
plenishing their stocks of goods. Such
stories as that published will work great
damage to the city's business men and
cannot Ik- too roundly denounced.' A rep
resentative of the board of firevriters ex
pressed himself us being entirely ignor
ant of the alleged facts embodied in the
sensational article, lie, too, was of the
opinion that it had its incentive in articles
published some tiuie since iu the Chicago
press. Strong cases have been mude
against partiis there, but nothing was un
dergoing investigation here so far as he

TRIAL OF A FAITH CURIST.

MoSMiU'TII. Ills.. Oct. 11. The Mon

Stewart, whom thi presbytery charges
with having violate 1 the faith and stan
dard doctrine of the church in preaching
in favor of present divine or miraculous
healing and impart it g of the Iioiy Ghost,
as the apostlesdh!. I eisalso charged with
breaking promises, ttc. So f;ir the prose
cution is making poor headway, Ilev.
Marshall, of K.nk Island, a witness for
that side, said that Mewart he'd meetings
in his church, ami t iat no "material in
jury" result. I.
Witnesses will testify that S'ewatt was
itistrurrental throtu.h C-ni-t iu healing
both spiritually an I physically. Stewart
has also a large number of testimorials
from Lincoln, I'awme City, Heat rice an I
other Nebraska points showing that the
days of miracles are not passed, but all
that is required is more genuine faith.
The accused has he-.-j preaching iu the
United I 'res I yterian church about fifteen
years. For two year- he has been holding
revivals una meetine- with unparalleled
success. The presbytery claims thatlKs
actions caused ciisir.i ion and distrust 111

Claims 40,000 of the Itic Crowd EvenU
at the W hite City.
Chicago, Oct. II. All the world is talk
ing about the attendance at the World's
fair on Chicago Day, and the attendance
yesterday adds to the interest. The revised
figures for Monday are ViS..V.t5. Yesterday
the figures were S.S613. This makes the
magnificent aggregate for the two days of
l,0"T,l:5!l. The person who saw the multi
tude Chicago Day saw something unpre
cedented in the wav of crowds: saw what
he will probably never have the opportu
nity lo see again Mich things do uot hap
pen or.ce in a generation. TnousH(ids of
those who came to town Saturday. Sun
day and Monday came here to see the fair
with tickets giving them teu days, and
doubtless the figures will be large for
every ray for a week or more.
Itatht-r Trying on New York.
This makes ir particularly trying on
New York city. Manhattan day is Oct. 21.
and is intended to mak- up for the rathei
light attendance on New York day. Hut
the city is waking up and t lie railways
have given a fir. round trip rate and there
is hope tlm- the eastern metropolis will In
able to "p lint wit h pride'' to her day at
the fair. Chicago day's enormous attend
ance has moved the city papers of Nevs
York to devote more space and honest
praise to i hic.-itM and the fair than has
been their custom. The floats that were
used Chic-ig i "lay in the evening will prob
ably lie Use ! wit h new subjects of course
on Manhattan day. At any rate Chicago
has offered t hem.
T.vell St. l.ollt Is Impressed.
St. Louis is nl o iiunressed with t lie mag
nificence of the Winoy C IV demonstration.
On the rlonr of the Men hants' erchange it
is the leading topic, and at the hotel noth
ing else is ta.ked of. A number of wagers
were made on the attendance, but in no
case were the figures higher than 2.V0,fXV.
St. Iiuis. however, takes to herself a share
of the glory, as one newspaper declare?
that no le-s than 40,noo of the TIS.ooo were
from that city and itsTsiiburbs. This has
started tnew the m.ioted project to hold a
world's fair in St. Ixuis on the centennial
anniversary of the Louisiana purchase.
1 lie I xjiositin Out of Debt.
A matter that should not be lost sight
of is the fact that the directory redeemed
its promise to celebrate Chicago Day by
paying the last dollar on the bonds issued.
It took a cheek for l..'st..::io.TG to do it,
but it was done and left a very handsome
sum in the treasury to go on the payment
of a dividend to the stockh- lders, who are
liegintiing to f.-el that they will get back
quite a percentage of their money. What
con es iu no.v over and above the current
expenses is profit audit lonksl.keit would
be a very large sum before tiie gates are
finally closed on the right of Oct. 31.
